Welcome back to our Colour Creations Showcase as we continue our showcase of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alpha order.
This week we are showcasing Sahara Sand, the lightest neutral in the Stampin’ Up! colour range.
Recognise the colours on my card this week? You probably won’t because they are the brand new 2021-23 In Colours!
From top to bottom in my ink pad stack you can see Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.
My card is “something old, something new” this week, with the “new” being the InColours and the “old” being the lovely floral stamp set and dies that I’ve white heat embossed onto my Sahara Sand card base.
I’ve loved the Bloom & Grow stamp set and I’m going to miss it a lot when it retires in a few week’s time.
After heat embossing the larger floral stamp (top left on stamp case image), the “thank you” sentiment and some of the smaller sprigs I used my blender pen to lift ink directly off the stamp pads and colour in the images. I snipped the larger image into two pieces and arranged the flowers behind my sentiment.
Before adhering everything to the card with dimensionals, I wrapped linen thread around the Sahara Sand Layer and tied a bow.
The notecards with matching envelopes make card making so quick and easy – I used a few left over leaves to decorate the back of my envelope.
Sahara Sand is a great colour to colour directly onto, especially after you have heat embossed in white. Although I’ve used my ink pads and blender pen for this card, you could also use water colour pencils with the blender pen, Stampin’ Write markers or your Stampin’ Blends.
All of the new InColours are available as Stampin’ Blends as well as Stampin’ Write markers and you can purchase them from the 1st May.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created with Sahara Sand today!
